**UPDATE 9/26/12** Woke up this morning to find the baby Betta sucked up the filter tube (my fault should of had filter alittle more lowered) =( RIP baby Betta

My venture into a new hobby. The 5 gallon has a Crowntail Betta and the 1.5 gallon has a baby Betta. I am thinking the baby is turning out to be a female, what you think?

Tanks used are Tetra 5 gallon crescent aquarium and Tetra 1.5 gallon Cube aquarium. Using a Tetra Whisper 3i for both tanks (doesn't do well in a 5gallon), but thinking of upgrading the 5 gallon with a mini Tom filter.

Nano tanks are susceptible to fast fluctuations in water chemistry. Having a small bioload allows less maintenance and makes for a more stable environment. Lighting was controlled with a timer with a light cycle of eight hours. The CO2 system was a regulator adapted to a 20-ounce paintball cylinder. The CO2 rate was 1 bubble per second through a ceramic diffuser while the lights were on.
The aquarium was fully planted from Day 1 and allowed to cycle for three weeks before adding any fauna. Potential for an algae bloom was reduced by starting with a 5-hour photoperiod and having a large amount of plant mass at initial planting. Black brush algae began to develop on the Bolbitis and brown dust algae on the stones. The black brush algae was trimmed off and treated with spot treatments of hydrogen peroxide. The green algae were consumed by the cherry shrimp, once added to the nano.
The result is a fully planted display tank that is aesthetically pleasing and remains challenging enough to keep my interest in its care. Maintenance includes a quick scraping of algae from the glass surfaces and weekly 20 percent reverse osmosis water and 10 percent treated tap water changes. Trimming is done every two weeks along with the maintenance of the filter and other equipment or as needed. A 9-gallon cube has a small footprint and can be placed in any area of the home or even on a desk at work, and moved if necessary. 7.5 Gallon Mr. Aqua Cube Aquarium

Thank you for taking the time to watch the video for my 7.5 Gallon SPS, LED Nano Cube Reef Aquarium. It has been up and running since May of 2011.

please, feel free to ask questions, if you would like to know more about this setup.

I hope you enjoy the video. …one aquariums. All Mr. Aqua tanks have a rimless design with super clean silicone sealing the tank together for years of beauty. We like to use smaller pieces of Pukani Rock or Fiji Rock for the 25 gallon Mr. Aqua tank since their average shapes are pretty round, they fit the cube shape really well.…nano aquarium system big on style and high-end features great for hobbyists of all skill levels. JBJ Cubey Deluxe 3 Gallon Aquarium boasts superior 3-stage filtration and a brilliant, 5W controllable RGB LED lighting system that allow versatile set up options. Great for entry-level hobbyists as well…
